Celebration Nachos is my recipe  of the day with an event for Festive Foodies.  And we are sharing red white and blue  recipes for  the  upcoming 4th of July Independence Day holiday.

I think  this recipe  is perfect to keep your guests out of  your hair  if the  bbq is slow   getting  done.

Set up  a slow  cooker with the cheese and  keep  the chips handy with the pico  in a bowl of  ice. Your cookout guests will  have a great time with it.

Or perhaps it’s just a small crowd. You can  do up  just a few small plates. Or even set  it up for one if you  are snacking  solo.

However you choose to serve your nachos, enjoy the day. Whether or not you  observe American Independence. You don’t need a reason to enjoy nachos.  They are delicious  anytime.

Cuisine American, Tex-Mex
Servings 2 cups

Ingredients
  

  • 8 ounces Cabot Pepper-Jack cheese (shredded)
  • 8 ounces white American cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 10 fluid ounces whole milk
  • 1/3 cup finely diced tomatoes
  • 4 ounce can chopped green chillies

Instructions
 

  • Shred cheeses and set aside.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan and whisk in the flour to form a roux.
  • Stir in garlic paste, green chillies, tomatoes, and milk, and continue stirring over low heat until sauce thickens.
  • Remove pan from heat and gradually add cheeses, stirring constantly, allowing them to melt into the sauce. If the cheese doesn’t continue to melt, put back on the heat just to warm it enough to melt the cheese, but be careful not to boil, otherwise the sauce becomes grainy and stringy, and can seize up. Very low heat is the key here, using as little heat as you can.
  • Serve sauce with chips or in other recipes.
